Tips for Renting in Cumming

Those looking to rent in Cumming, GA should be vigilant about Georgia state ordinances for rental properties and the terms of their lease agreement. The Georgia Landlord and Tenant Handbook is a great resource for renters in Cumming. Renters should know that under Georgia law there is no maximum security deposit that a landlord can charge, and that landlords are required to place security deposits in an escrow account. When a renter moves out of a property, their landlord must complete a thorough inspection and provide a list of any damages to be charged against the security deposit within 3 business days.
